This just in — from our diligent and still-unpaid roving jazz correspondent Marianne Mangan — !
Who are these clean-cut young men holding saxophones? They’re talented players, that’s who — identical twins Will Anderson and Peter Reardon Anderson, reed wizards whom I’ve heard and enj0yed on gigs with Jon-Erik Kellso and with Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks. Their performance credits are far more elaborate than those groups, however, as you can read on their website: http://www.andersontwinsjazz.com/bio.html. Peter plays tenor and clarinet; Will, alto and clarinet. Now you can hear them, too, at that palace of jazz, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. Their group, the Anderson Twins Quintet, will be appearing there from Tuesday, September 1, to Saurday, September 5, with their performances beginning at 11 PM — music worth taking a midday nap for!
Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola is located within Jazz at Lincoln Center, at 60th Street and Broadway in New York City. Phone: 212-258-9800. The cover charge is $10-20 (presumably weekdays /weekends); $5-10 for students with valid student ID.
